ARTS MILL – 2011

Wow!  Another project, just what I needed.  Yup, I added another project to my already overload schedule.  Funny thing, this one couldn’t be going smoother or be more fun!  Sheri Bestor and I decided to open a sister site to North Shore Academy of the Arts, ARTS MILL.  Its in the Village of Grafton.

Ten years ago, North Shore Academy of the Arts began in a quaint space in an old mill next to a river. Three rooms, a hand built stage, and a few classes. As the years went on, the offerings in the visual, performing and literary arts grew, offering quality enrichment programming to thousands of kids and adults in southeastern Wisconsin. A place that encourages, inspires and promotes creativity, NSAA has been an educational resource for those wishing to learn about the arts and themselves.

But after the learning, every artist also needs a place to do her art.

As 2011 celebrates the start of the next decade of programming, it also marks an exciting new expansion, one that has brought this non-profit organization full circle.  Look at our web site to see more!

Grafton Arts Board Seeking Artists!

I am on the Village of Grafton Arts Board. Here is a great opportunity for artist seeking exposure!

Banner Design/Art Proposals

The Village of Grafton’s Public Arts Board is requesting proposals from artists to design artwork for placement on 4 banners. The 18 inch by 36 inch banners will be suspended from street light posts in Grafton’s Paramount Plaza. The selected artist will be awarded $500. One completed design plus 3 additional sketches must be submitted by March 16 to the Grafton Village Hall. The art design must share some common design element as well as visually support the Village’s musical and cultural legacies of Paramount Record’s production of blues records from 1917 – 1932. To learn more about the banner project, see

So Strawberry Festival has passed, sculptures painted, now its time for DOG ART!  The Village of Grafton held Art Bark.  You know the gig, its where the give artist fiberglass animals, in this case DOGS, and artist’s make them magical!  I submitted 2 designs.  My 1st design Globally Grafton was chosen.  The concept;  the dog is covered in postcards from around the world with comments from well wishers to Grafton.  The idea was born after watching Invictus.  I loved the idea of that movie!!  I was so inspired by the movie

, as was my son.  The dog was matched with the Milwaukee Ale House.  It was fun and colorful!
